Default Camping/fishing suggestions sought

Any suggestions would be appreciated as to a good location to tent camp on (or near) a southern IL lake and fish from a canoe end of July. Looking to minimize canoe bouncing impact from personal watercraft and pleasure boats. Could Kinkaid be a nice destination?

Give Cedar Lake south of Carbondale a try. It's probably the most scenic lake in Illinois. You can tent camp in the Shawnee Natl Forest. There is a 10 h.p. limit so no jet ski's or hordes of bassboats here.
Little Grassy Lake is also a 10 h.p. limit lake with a campground right on the lake. The fishing is a little tougher at little grassy because the water is so clear.
